Bliss Bros. Dairy has been a staple on Park Street in Attleboro since 1924. It has also remained in the Bliss family since that time by being passed down from generation to generation. After growing into bigger facilities and upgrading machinery, the family-run dairy is capable of producing 800 gallons of frozen treats per hour. Stop by for ice cream by the scoop or half gallon, and ice cream, frozen yogurt and sherbet by the quart. They also offer ice cream pizzas and ice cream gift packages, or you can also stop by their restaurant for a quick bite followed by the good stuff. 7am-10pm daily. 711 Park Street, Attleboro. 508-222-2884

Another family-owned and operated creamery is Somerset Creamery, which has been around since 1937. The ice cream is made daily by the original owner’s daughter and her husband. Available by the scoop in fresh-baked waffle cones, or in hand-packed pints and quarts, this family tradition doesn’t seem to being going anywhere anytime soon. 12pm-10pm daily. 1931 G.A.R. Highway, Somerset. 508-672-5510

Cold Fusion is on the map, literally. Their website has a feature that allows the user to type in their zip code and subsequently find retailers who sell Cold Fusion products, gelato and sorbet. Aside from being easy to find, this product is anything but easy to make. Owner and operator Torrance Kopfer worked on Wall Street and wanted to start his own business. His gelato and sorbet are made with extreme attention to detail by supporting local farmers whenever possible and making very small batches daily. Cold Fusion clearly takes pride in its final product. 389 Thames Street, Newport. 401-849-6777

Another landmark is Salvador’s Ice Cream in Dartmouth. Salvador’s opened its doors in the spring of 1936 and was family-owned and operated until 2005. Ownership transferred to Len and Beth Gauvin, who restored the historic milk can landmark, which has been a staple on Smith Neck Road since 1935. They received accolades from the New Bedford Historic Society for their restoration. They offer Gifford’s Ice Cream, as well as a few lunch noshes. Hours during the season are Sat-Sun 11:30am-9pm. 460 Smith Neck Road, Dartmouth

Starting out as a one café operation in Mansfield, Café Arpeggio has turned into a three café business. Owners Rob and Suk Gould have successfully maintained these bistro-style cafes offering treats ranging from gourmet salads, soups, sandwiches, desserts and, of course, from-scratch ice cream. Customers can watch Rob make the ice cream every Wednesday at the Fall River location while enjoying a cup of gourmet coffee. There are approximately 103 flavors of ice cream which are rotated depending on demand and the season. Each café has 15-20 flavors available at any time. The other locations are in New Bedford and South Boston. Hours of operation are Mon-Thur 8am- 5pm, Fri 8am-3pm. 139 South Main Street, Fall River. 508-679-3333
